Watch Out Wrinkles, Belotero Is Approved

For those who are looking for another option for facial wrinkles, the Food and Drug Administration has approved Merz Aesthetic's Belotero Balance facial filler for the correction of moderate-to-severe wrinkles.

According to reports, this hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler may offer better results on fine lines when it's used closer to the surface of the skin in comparison to its counterparts like Juvederm and Restylane. Yet when choosing the appropriate filler, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist will be able to guide patients to which facial filler is best to achieve individual goals.

Like other fillers, Belotero may cause mild reactions like swelling, bruising and injection site nodules, but study results showed that patients still saw results 24 months after Belotero was used to fill their moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds.

Are you excited about this addition to the fight against aging? And will you ask your doctor about this new facial filler?

    There is nothing wrong with wanting to look and feel your best. If fillers are your cup of tea, great. If they aren't, great. I for one am all for any women deciding for themselves that they don't like that they see in the mirror and making a change. Don't judge people, it just makes you look like a small person.

    I'd have to agree with Mia. Aging is a natural process of life and should be embraced, just as birth and development should also be celebrated. I am not opposed to using ingredients from nature to enhance one's appearance. However, anything injected under the skin that may "may cause mild reactions like swelling, bruising and injection site nodules" is not natural! And it's not healthy!

    Do you wear makeup? Color your hair? Paint your fingernails? Have pierced ears? Since the beginning of time, women have sought to present their best selves to others. We are attracted to beautiful people. If you do any of the above, you are utilizing technologies that weren't available to our ancestors. Would they call us vain? Perhaps....but asking us not to use the technology of our day is like asking us to stop using our cars and go back to the horse and buggy. Social traditions evolve....in a few years if they invent a safe pill that gets rid of fat.....will you abstain? How about if a man can take a pill that will prevent him losing his hair? What a wonderful time we live in! Look at all the medical advancements that have helped us to live longer, look better and feel more youthful! Embrace the future!

    I agree! It is not sad and sick and what is sad and sick are judgmental closed minded people. Anything in moderation is fine and wanting to look your best is not sad not sick.

    I don't think it's sad and sick at all. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
